Also, get the vaccine or go to jail?
We’re not at that point yet for everybody, but if you commit a crime or get accused of a crime, and you haven’t yet rolled up your sleeve, you might just face a judge who makes that decision for you.

Brandon and his attorney, Carl Lewis, join “Banfield” live from Cincinnati.
